For the past four years, the University of Waterloo has been ranked the number one university in Canada for employer-student connections, according to the 2020 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Graduate Employability Rankings

The “Employer-Student Connections” metric is measured by determining the number of individual employers who have been actively present on a university’s campus over the past twelve months, providing students with opportunities to network and acquire information. Actively present employers participate in career fairs, specialized company presentations and any other self-promoting activities or events. The data for this metric is adjusted to account for the size of each institution and considers the number of students presently enrolled.
